If you are on this page you may have received our postcard with free sunflower seeds attached! Thank you for coming to akas.com.au for information on how to plant and care for your sunflowers.

Sunflower Planting and Care:

1. Plant in Spring to Mid-Summer in a sunny position

2. Plant 2 seeds together 1cm below the soil level

3. Space them 30cm apart if planting many

4. Water them everyday until the seedlings appear, then every 2 days from there on

5. Seedlings should appear within 10-14 days

6. They may need a bamboo stake to help them grow tall and strong!

note* it can be a good idea to germinate them in a small pot with good quality potting mix, then transfer to a larger pot or in the ground once they reach approximately 10cm tall.

Thank you and enjoy your beautiful sunflowers!
